Svakere resultat enn ventet fra Aker BP

Resultatene fra Aker BP steg betydelig i fjerde kvartal i fjor, men analytikerne hadde ventet enda mer. Selskapet innfridde samtidig sin egen produksjonsprognose.

Det Kjell Inge Røkke-dominerte oljeselskapet Aker BP fortsetter sin kraftige vekst. Selskapet slapp fredag morgen resultatene for fjerde kvartal som viser en vekst i inntektene fra 656 til 726 millioner dollar, mot samme periode året før. Dette er både takket være økt produksjon og en økt oljepris.

Selskapet fikk i snitt 65 dollar per fat olje de solgte, mot 52 ett år tidligere. Den gjennomsnittlige gassprisen endte på 0,26 dollar per standard kubikkmeter, opp fra 0,19.

AKERBP: Exploration success in PL340 near Alvheim

Aker BP is about to complete drilling of the Frosk exploration well 24/9-12 located near Alvheim in the North Sea. The well has proved oil. Preliminary analysis indicate a discovery size of 30-60 million barrels of oil equivalents (mmboe), which is significantly more than the company's pre-drill estimates of 3 -21 mmboe. The discovery also has a positive impact on the assessment of further exploration potential in the area.

Frosk is located in PL340, which also contains the Bøyla field. Bøyla has been producing oil since 2015 through a subsea installation tied back to the Alvheim FPSO.

- The Frosk discovery adds significant volume and value to our resource base, and provides an ideal basis for another profitable expansion project which will secure optimal utilization of the infrastructure in the Alvheim area for many years, says Gro G. Haatvedt, Senior Vice President Exploration in Aker BP.

- The discovery has given us valuable new information about the geological conditions in the area, and has further increased the attractiveness of other possible exploration targets, Haatvedt says.

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (www.npd.no) will issue a more detailed press release when the evaluation of the discovery has been completed.

Aker BP is the operator of PL340 with a 65 percent working interest. The partners are Point Resources with 20 percent and Lundin Petroleum with 15
percent.
